hi,

i just bought zotac rtx 3080 trinity and the fans are spinning like 5-7 sec & stop for 1-2 sec spinning 5-7 sec & stop for 1-2 sec.

the temp is 57 and im not in game.

it is ok? its work like that all the time? i wondering if the fans need to spin when the gpu get hotter and stop when he reach the normal temp

thanks for help

It's likely because you're on the border between Fan Stop active and Fan Stop disabled.
It's not good to let it keep doing that, so set a static fan curve - like, 30% when you're not actually using it.

i think there is problem with the gpu cuz the fans are never stop to spin the card always get warm and the fans always spin to save it on 55-57 (on msi afterburn the fan speed on AUTO)

why the gpu get that warm if im even not in game?

my old msi 2070 super even when i was in game the fans was not spinning

thanks for the help

Yes.

Because the system is never truly idle, and the GDDR6 memory(on old 2070 Super) has higher operating thermals than the GDDR5 & R5X found on the popular Pascal(10 series) cards.
RTX 3080 is equipped with GDDR6X memory.


It doesn't have to be 30%, but find a curve you're comfortable with.
The bottom line is that the default curve is disruptive and not great for the health of the fan motor if it's constantly on/off like that.
